TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — UPDATE: A six-car accident on the Perrine Bridge slowed traffic coming into Twin Falls Tuesday afternoon. The chain reaction accident resulted from a funeral procession crossing the bridge.
Idaho State Trooper Shana Gonzales said around 12:24 p.m., a funeral procession went south on the bridge and a vehicle tried to pass another.
One vehicle left the scene and continued onto the funeral, she said.
"It was all noninjury. Both lanes were reopened at approximately 1:33, so one lane was closed for about one hour and nine minutes," Gonzales said.
While traffic was backed up, a call was made about a woman going into labor by mile post 54, north of the bridge.
Gonzales said Twin Falls City Fire Department went to assist, but the call was cancelled.
